Just been on the tour to the Canyon. Would recommend this company without hesitation. Our tour guide/driver Rick was friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. A great day out

“Great trip to Sedona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Tour was to Sedona and also included other stops along the way (Jerome, Oak Valley, Montezuma Castle). The van only holds 10 people and there were five on our tour, making it a much more intimate experience than a typical motorcoach tour. Seats were leather captain chairs and very comfortable. Our driver was very knowledgable of the area and let us decide what we wanted to see and how long to spend at each stop. I would definetly recommend this tour and I plan on using this company for a Grand Canyon tour the next time I'm in the area!

“Grand Canyon and Sedona One Day Tour, Must Do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We had a wonderful day with Les! He talked a lot but he was super informative being a former school teacher on the Indian reservations. He picked us up right on time at our hotel in Phoenix and we only had 6 people in our group, which was nice.

This is a must do if you have never been to the Grand Canyon before and only have one day available to be able to go. We came for a conference so only had one free day and boy are we glad we did it!!!

You see so much in one day, it's kind of amazing! We stopped in Sedona at Bell Rock for a picture stop and LOVED it. Also had another 30 minute stop in the Sedona shops. Then we went onto the Grand Canyon. Les was awesome and took us on 4 stops of the Grand Canyon. This tour took us to not only the popular South rim that others tours take you to but also to the East rim, which I personally liked even better! The Grand Canyon was breathtaking!!!! Then at the end we went to the Camden Trading Post and they have every souvenir you could want there.

It was a long day but it went super fast. Les gave us so many interesting facts about the Indian culture and the geography, etc. He was definitely an experienced tour guide! And we was very helpful as far as offering information in the bus and at the canyon, taking pics for us and providing water bottles. Also all the pit spots made the journey not seem so long and he took rest stops for us to use the restroom. This tour also included a yummy sandwich lunch, which was nice.

I would recommend this tour to anyone!!!! And it seemed like we did a ton for the price, 13 hour tour for under $155. This tour was a great introduction to the Canyon and I can't wait to come back and stay longer!

“Day trips with Detours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

My wife and I used Detours for two trips from the Phoenix area.

First to the grand canyon with Nemo as a brilliant guide/driver. What a trip! DO TAKE THE HELICOPTER OPTION you will not regret the cost. The included lunch was a proper doorstep of a sandwich, delicious. Plenty of water supplied and even some sweets. A long but absolutely fantastic day.

Second was a trip to Tombstone and the San Xavier mission. A lot of the cowboy tales from my childhood realised in one day. Montana ( what an apt name) was our guide/driver knowledgable and great fun. Don't miss the gents loo in fat nose kath's.

“Grand Canyon trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

My wife and I took the Grand Canyon day trip with Charlie and really enjoyed ourselves. Excellent commentary. Lunch will serve well for dinner too - huge sandwiches. Trip from the Canyon thru the Navajo reservation was surprisingly (to me) very scenic.

Comments have been made regarding unsafe driving. i found Charlie to drive the speed limit. And while there are some curvey roads, you need to remember that the drive is experienced in driving the van and experienced in driving the roads. Your safety won't be compromised
